Featured Thriller Author
A Renaissance Man:
An Interview with 
Brewster M. Robertson
by Joyce Dixon

I suspect that Brewster Robertson would be the first to rebuff my calling him "a renaissance man," but that is clearly what he is.  Robertson brings to mind those men who used to be numerous in the South and now are rare treasures.  Where the term today has been belittled to "Jack of all trades and master of none,"  Robertson excels at each venture and greets the morning with curiosity and the spirit of an explorer.
